Storytelling Alice NOTE: Storytelling Alice is no longer supported. It is available for download because we still receive some requests and because it provides a glimpse of some of the ideas influencing the design of Alice 3. But, use at your own risk. Storytelling Alice was created by Caitlin Kelleher as part of her doctoral work in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. For details on the design, development and evaluation of Storytelling Alice, please see Caitlin’s homepage. In contrast to the large number of people who use computers and computer programs in their daily lives, relatively few learn to create their own computer programs.
Thank you to Ben Train @benjamintrain for the nudge towards Tristan Bancks’ Story Scrapbook, a free multimedia story brainstorming and presenting app, that has potential beyond just the telling of tales. Story Scrapbook lets you bring together images, video, music, text and web grabs on virtual pages, bringing the writing process alive for people who think visually, interactively and aurally, as well as textually. As a way of gathering, and presenting, information of any kind, Story Scrapbook means you can insert any form of media alongside free hand drawings too.

Storytelling continues to gain popularity as an educational activity. As it stimulates a deep thinking, creativity and basic literacies, it also enhances and enriches the learning experience for student voices. Storytelling is an art form that uses a story ARC regardless of digital tools used while modernizing the traditional oral storytelling. It is more than "tell about" or "explain something" - a rich, powerful storytelling unfolds a dilemma - a struggle and a resolution organized around a story point or lesson learned.
